Ok we got our first SR5 rumors of the year (highly reliable source and 90% chance the information is correct). To not miss more of those rumors subscribe our RSS feed, join us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.

This is the info I got from a reliable source: Sony will launch a new “budget” 85mm FE lens in 2017. The source didn’t unveil the aperture of the lens. He only said it will be a companion for the 50mm f/1.8 ([shopcountry 54647]). I guess this one will have an f/1.8 aperture too.

The two FE lenses that are coming in 2017 for sure are:

1) 16-35mm f/2.8 GM FE
2) 85mm f/1.8 FE (aperture is unconfirmed but I think almost certainly right)

And for sure there will be many more new FE lenses in 2017 (including telephoto lenses). I hope to get info about those soon…
